TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Tucson in July can only mean one thing - watermelon eegees are back!

Throughout the month, Tucsonans can cool off with the tasty frozen treat at any of the restaurants in town.

Eegees revealed the return of the fan-favorite flavor in a tweet Thursday.

KGUN9's Pat Parris spoke with the Tucson chain earlier this year. In that interview, it revealed that it has thrived in the past year despite the pandemic.
